SLA News

  • Board Meeting Minutes Now Available

    The SLA New England Board recently moved to make board meeting minutes accessible to the New England Chapter Community in Connect after the recent migration from the old website, where minutes were previously made available.

    You can now find meeting minutes in the Board Meeting Minutes folder of the SLA New England Chapter Connect Library

    Currently, the most recently approved minutes have been added, which include minutes from the 2017 Annual Business Meeting (approved at the 2018 ABM) and the February and March 2019 board meetings. 

    Going forward, the minutes will be added monthly, and I will post an announcement accordingly.

    If you have any questions/comments/concerns about this change or suggestions regarding secretarial duties, please don't hesitate to contact me at kelly.bunting@analog.com.

    Thanks,
    Kelly
    SLA New England Secretary
